Corinne Handelman

Corinne joined ONDA in 2016 and works out of our Portland office. Her role is to energize our current members in the Portland metro area and build further support for ONDA’s conservation work. She sits on Oregon Environmental Council’s Emerging Leaders Board, an advisory board for Portland’s young professionals.

Corinne grew up near the redwoods and oak woodlands of Northern California and quickly became a lover of the great outdoors. With an interest in conservation and passion for communicating environmental science to public audiences, she earned a bachelor’s degree in ecology at the University of California, San Diego and a master’s degree in environmental science and management at Portland State University. Before joining ONDA, Corinne worked for the Sandy River Basin Watershed Council, where she coordinated with watershed residents and recreational enthusiasts to enhance wild salmon habitat.

On most weekends, you can find Corinne camping in Oregon’s wilderness areas or working in her garden’s Backyard Habitat.
